Young Widow pipped at the Border by the Dalai Lama

Blog, Young Widow's Book of Home Improvement

In the most eclectic collection of recommendations I’ve seen in a long time, my book is one of five selected for the current Shortlist by the Borders bookstore chain, a curated selection of titles emailed to their 300,000 or so online subscribers. The email features extras – an author Q&A and a download of Chapter One – that my publisher UQP submitted some months ago in the hope of eventual selection. So it’s a thrill to see my humble first offering among such fine if strange company – a vampire love story, a collection of titles on property investment and tax avoidance, a book of short stories, and 10 Questions for the Dalai Lama.  I suspect that’s about as close as I’ll ever get to His Holiness.
